At the beginning of every journey, there is a point where you ask yourself, “What am I doing here?” And I truly have that point in mind right now. In all honesty, at this point in time, I virtually know very little in practical application to the world known as Aquaponics. It’s all theory to me right now. I have done a lot of reading and found some very cool things I want to try, but at this point, from this very starting point I am very much like you who have just come on to this site, or seen one of my videos, or looked at one of the many things we are doing.
To give you a point of reference for exploring everything Aquaponics for Sub-Urbia, I am what could be classified as a city dweller. Sure by the time you become acquainted with me and my crew in the future we have dust between our toes and fish poop on our overalls, but as a youth, I felt right at home in this asphalt jungle of ours. It was comfy to know that civilization had my back from the elements of nature. Oh, how wrong that was… but at the time it was very comforting.
Growing up I had seen all that I am looking to bring back to the forefront of society, to the frontal lobes of mankind the items that have been lost to past generations; like growing your own food, preserving food for a long time period, becoming self-sufficient in every way possible from the economic or societal winds that change from time to time. My father had the backyard garden as I was growing up. As an able-bodied youngster, I was set to weed the corn, and water the squash and have my fill of the fresh raw peas in the pods. Oh, yes, I did enjoy me some rhubarb straight from the ground (after you washed off the dirt and all)!
